Two things I rely on daily. Praying comes easy to me, but crocheting not as easily as it once did. There was a time before MG when I could crochet for hours and hours. Now with MG, I crochet in short spurts. I work around medication times and muscle strength. I find both to be meditative and contemplative. This is a great time for me to say my rosary. With each cross stitch I make, it reminds of Jesus on the cross and the sacrifice he made for us. As the afghans begin to grow I think of the family, friends, loved ones, and complete strangers that will be warmed by the love and faith that went into each stitch.
For every project I complete I am truly thankful. Although I'm not as strong as I once was, I am blessed to be able to continue to create.These two projects were completed yesterday. The striped lapghan is a gift for a friend of my sister's, who resides in a nursing facility.
The other, I call "Bubblegum" was meant as a Christmas gift. Life got in the way, so now it will be a "just because" gift.
Thank you to all my friends for your continued prayers and well wishes, they are truly appreciated.
